This is my first post on here so - hello!

I was unfortunate enough to tear my anterior cruciate ligament whilst on holiday in Australia last year & now need to find a gym in London with a seated leg press that does NOT have a moving plate that you rest your feet on, i.e. the seat - not the feet plate - should move, like the one in the youtube video below:

I have called Jubilee Hall gyms in both Covent Garden & Colombo Street (Waterloo) & the gym in the City of London Academy secondary school near where I live - & apparently none of them have this particular piece of equipment!

Can anyone please advise of a gym in the SE1 / Central London (preferably near the #1 bus route) area that has one of these types of leg press machine?

The reason I need this particular type is that I am very limited in what exercises I am allowed to do at present, following my ACL reconstruction operation, i.e. major knee surgery.

Hi Paula - I belive Soho Gyms Waterloo has this piece of equipment. Hope this helps.
